On the outskirts of Donetsk Petrovna, a shell flew into the house. Everything was blown to smithereens, two washing machines were broken, Masha the parrot was rushing around the cage, there was a tragedy in the family. The sons of Petrovna, laughing and swearing, pull out the remaining junk from the destroyed hut and transport the family to the old Soviet bomb shelter, which has been preserved since Soviet times. And they still consider themselves lucky: “The main thing is that everyone is alive.” On the other side of the front line, on the outskirts of Ukrainian-controlled Svetlodarsk, lives a very similar Petrovna of the same age. She was lucky - the shell hit the neighbors' house, and her barn only burned down. She watches the video, which shows the first Petrovna, and sympathizes: “Everything is the same as we have.” In the third family, in Gorlovka, everything is in order so far. They are already accustomed, just a little, to hide in the basement and live in constant expectation that a shell will fly to them. There's a pry bar in the basement in case the door gets blocked. The film-reportage shows the war in Ukraine on both sides of the front, people separated by an invisible line that suddenly marked the once united land.
